"Hello, world!" Jack Thompson said into the camera, his words almost drowned out by the dull roar of a plane engine. "This is Jack Shit Survival, where you don't know jack-shit of how to survive in the wilderness! But that's where I come in. You see I'm a survival expert, and I'll be showing you how to survive in the wild. Try to keep up!"
Summer Scares is a thing I'll be running every month up until September where I give away ten ebooks per contest. With my new release coming out soon it should make things easier to alternate between the two. This'll help fans of horror/paranormal novels to find a new source of entertainment. I've also entered a number of events where my book will be judged, allowing me to see how certain panels of authors like my book. Seeing as the reviews all point to a 4.8 out of 5.0 that should make for a really interesting read for them, albeit a quick one.
As for my book Ghost of O'Leary House, I have a short story in the Grimlocke Chronicles about it that answers a few questions while raising a few more. Since I've decided to do a sequel it behooves me to do these extra stories and tie-ins during anthologies so that I can give some back story. The whole experience will create a better curve of understanding assuming that readers get a copy of each one of my works.
Ghost of O'Leary House has two things going on with it right now that'll get solved any day now. This new cover, and yes the above picture is a link to the book, conveys a more paranormal/horror vibe to the story that I really wanted people to feel. Love the artwork.
Finally, I have the contest to win a free ebook copy of the book going on right now, so click the link and try your luck!
That's right, ten electronic copies of my novel are going up as prizes in a lottery for any willing to follow the rules, which are simple enough. Following me on Amazon to be alerted when I have new work published shouldn't be a burden, so the chance of getting a free copy of my work should be worth the few moments it takes to login to your Amazon account.
Nothing else to report will be receding into my hidey-hole soon. Not much darkness for me to hide in this time of day.
The link to the giveaway is here!
Ghost of O'Leary House is getting a new cover! I liked the calm forest theme I had, I really do, but it didn't scream horror to me. It answered my inner Buddhist nicely, but not my inner demons.
And they need to be recognized.
Now that is foreboding! That is the feeling I wanted to get across! I have this one artist, and man they are great. Sam person that did the work for Grimlocke Chronicles, coming out May 2nd.
I have the anthology pretty much hammered out, so I'm looking for five or six test dummies to read it and provide reviews on Amazon once it comes out. I'll supply a .pdf file of the text about a week before the story is released and give you a week to read. Once it goes live a week later on May 2nd you can post your reviews and help me get the text some needed publicity. If you're interested, just drop me a line at my e-mail: email@example.com.
Stories will resume on a normal basis come May 3rd once I have this work out and ready to be perused by the public. You guys can help me make it happen, so drop me a line and I'll see about getting you an advanced copy!
